Hi Nicholas,

They are both part of every release.

The repository objects refer to a repository as a whole -- that is, an
IMAP server or a Maildir tree.  From a Repository, you can find out what
folders are out there, get Folder objects, and the like.

The Folder objects refer to a mailbox.  Folders let you find out what
messages are in them, copy or delete messages, set flags, etc.
